This is a dress I made for a big ball at the Opera this january. It is very much inspired by a House of Worth dress from 1882, even though I made some adjustments. It was a Russian themed ball so me and my man came as the Russian tsarpair to be(since Nicolaj became tsar first in 1894 or something like that and this was set in the 1880's)

Thanks, haha yeah i bought it at an international onlinestore, the tiara, so i guess many will have it!
It's fun with a little more of feminine lines to work with, it can be tiresome with all of the straight lines of the 18th Century..
It fits you perfect, and those details! Would be awesome if you'd ever got the time to do some close-up shots ^^
I was wondering, are you wearing a corset underneath? And if so, do you think it would be possible to get the same smooth lines and perfect fitting without wearing one?
Thank you! I'm quite satisfied, and yeah, i missed to do that, it is some parts that doesnt show in the pictures.
And for the corset, yeah you must wear one to get that look even if the whole bodice is lined and boned to, so you must basically bone everything you wear over and under to get it that smooth! it's plenty of work but it pays of when you wear it!
I think I'll just have to improvise if I ever can make a dress as beautiful as this, and hope it works out somehow
Anyway: it's a beautiful gown Worth dresses are always such an inspiration.
